Mussolini Intrigued by Palestine Exhibits at Italy’s Levant Fair

Premier Benito Mussolini today visited the Palestine pavilion in the Levant Fair now being held in Bari, Italy. The Premier displayed deep interest in the exhibit of Palestine products and asked for detailed information on the development of Tel Aviv, the new harbor at Haifa and on the situation of the German Jews in Palestine.

Before the fair opened at Bari, two Italian airmen flew to Palestine carrying greetings to the cities of Jerusalem and Tel Aviv and also thanking Palestine officials for deciding to participate in the Bari fair.
